Belgrade Cemetery  

History Information (Source: CWGC)

Namur was attacked by the Germans on 20 August 1914; the forts were destroyed by heavy artillery, and at midnight on 23-24 the garrison was evacuated. The town then remained in German hands until the end of the war.

 

Belgrade Cemetery contains 249 Commonwealth burials of the First World War, most of them dating from the ten months when casualty clearing stations were then posted to Namur after the Armistice. There is also one burial of the Second World War.

 

The cemetery contains also a large plot of Belgian, French, Italian and Russian War Graves.
